Solar Atmospheres Installs 14 Foot Air Furnace
June 14, 2019
Solar Atmospheres of Western PA recently installed a brand new, 14-foot long car bottom air furnace. The furnace was surveyed in accordance with AMS2750 Rev E and is uniform within ±10°F (Class 2). With a working zone measuring 60” wide x 54” high x 168” long, the furnace will be capable of handling workloads up to 30,000 pounds. A maximum operating temperature of 1400°F allows this furnace to accommodate the tempering of large tool steel components, as well as the age hardening processes of nickel-based alloys and precipitation hardenable stainless steels.
Bob Hill, president of Solar Atmospheres of Western PA, states, “This new air tempering furnace will be a good complement its larger counterpart, a recently installed 20 foot long car bottom furnace. Expanding our large air furnace capability will enhance the turnaround for our ’raw material’ customers, and is more cost-effective than processing in a vacuum environment.”
